Event Description

To celebrate the 100th year anniversary of the enactment of women’s suffrage in America, this dance concert honors women’s persistence, creativity and grace on the long road to equal rights in society. As equality between all Americans rises to the forefront of justice and progress, the pieces in the concert amplify women’s voices and continued vulnerabilities. The concert features Martha Graham’s tour de force Scenes from Chronicle staged by guest artist in residence, Blakeley White-McGuire, and premiers by dance faculty members Amy Wilkinson and Sandra Kaufmann. Raúl Casasola from Joffrey Ballet will adapt the ‘Huntress Dance’ from Sylvia. Ruth Page award winner, Mei-Kuang Chen will choreograph an original ballet based on Chinese women’s suffrage. Through dance performance we seek to empower our students and advance our culture by showcasing women’s struggles and achievements on the long path to equality.
